The Yellow-browed Warbler is still in Felbrigg Park this morning. It was calling loudly and showing occasionally in the Oak and Beech tress, either side of the first cattle grid, on the estate road between Sexton’s Lodge and the Hall. It was with a couple of Goldcrest and a Treecreeper.

Not much else about, on what was the first proper autumn/winter morning of the year. There were still the odd frost pockets as I made my way down to the Lake. I spent a bit of time by the reed bed but again there was no sight nor sound of Bearded Tit. There were a few Reed Buntings about and a Green Woodpecker calling from the shelter belt. Same stuff on the Lake, but I haven’t seen the Little Grebe around lately. There was a pair of Teal but I couldn’t see the female Shoveler either. Up the lane, on the way home, a Bullfinch.
